We will present preliminary results for the J/psi close-to-threshold photoproduction obtained in the GlueX experiment at Jefferson Lab. Close-to-threshold photoproduction gamma+p-->J/psi+p probes small-size gluon configuration in the proton. This reaction may also contain a contribution from the s-channel production of the LHCb pentaquark P(4.4)-->J/psi+p at beam energies of about 10 GeV. Measuring the size of the contribution allows to evaluate, or put a limit on the branching ratio of the decay P-->J/psi+p. The GlueX experiment is in the process of collecting data. The main research topic is the spectroscopy of light mesons produced by a linearly polarized photon beam with the end point of 12 GeV.
